Bud Selig must be in hiding. With the San Francisco Giants holding a 2-0 lead in the 2010 World Series, news broke Thursday night that the sport of baseball may suddenly be engulfed in yet another steroids scandal. News leaked that Giants outfielder Jose Guillen has been linked to a federal drug investigation.
The Guillen story was first reported by the New York Times. U.S. customs agents reportedly intercepted a package of human growth hormone sent to Guillen’s house in his wife’s name. Guillen was mysteriously left off the Giants postseason roster for all three rounds of the playoffs.
MLB.com is now reporting that Guillen was left off the Giants postseason roster as a direct result of the Feds informing Major League Baseball of his involvement in an investigation of an illegal drug shipment. Guillen was also reportedly linked to a shipment of PEDs in 2007.
